Ego is the idea that “I am the doer, I am the accomplisher.” Ceasing to do actions is not the way to go beyond ego. To conquer ego one must do good actions. Some people say that all actions—both good and bad actions—cause bondage. This is not correct. Bad actions always cause bondage but good actions do not cause bondage. It is only the attachment to good actions that causes bondage. The cause of bondage is attachment to our ego. The only way to break free and manifest the intrinsic freedom of the Self is to do good actions without any attachment.
